About This Activity

People with Down syndrome have an extra chromosome, so this race has a little something EXTRA too – Official times will be recorded at the 5K finish line, then runners will go on to DASH the extra 0.11 miles to finish at 3.21 miles, in honor of the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome present in people with Down syndrome. Runners will be greeted at the finish line by DASHers with Down syndrome who will accompany them to the second finish line and thank them for their support!

Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day after the race with a free family friendly carnival including bounce houses, games and food!
